TRA also files the Alberta government’s GST returns, remits GST payable by Alberta government entities, and recovers overpayments.

The list of Alberta government departments and agencies not required to pay GST on purchases of taxable supplies and services is provided here. These entities are also not required to pay the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) on their purchases in HST-participating provinces.
